Ovenbirds (Furnariidae)

Bolivian Spinetail (Cranioleuca henricae) - HBW 8, p. 295

French: Synallaxe d’Inquisivi German: La Paz-Baumschlüpfer Spanish: Curutié Boliviano

Taxonomy: Cranioleuca henricae Maijer and Fjeldså, 1997, 3 km north of Inquisivi, 2350 m, La Paz, Bolivia.
Genetic data indicate that this is sister-species to C. pyrrhophia; the two are considered by some to form a superspecies that also includes C. subcristata, C. obsoleta, C. pallida, C. albicapilla, C. antisiensis and C. baroni, but genetic data suggest that at least the last two of those are not part of this lineage. Monotypic.

Distribution: R Cotacajes drainage in La Paz (sight records also from R Consata drainage) and Cochabamba, in C Bolivia.
